Summer's Last Hurrah! - Part I

Taking advantage of the long weekend we packed it up and headed out to see my folks Saturday so that we could go on a "Safari" excursion we've been talking about for what seems like forever.

But I think even more than the safari THIS was the highlight of the whole trip: Papa J surprised the little pumpkin by setting up a good 'ole fashion tire swing in their backyard!

Checking it out for the first time...
She wasn't excited or anything... Ready...Set... GO!Oh my! She L-O-V-E-D the swing!!!!! Papa J even taught her how to turn in circles! Even Papa J had a turn! This little guy wasn't too sure.
Next year Hudson, next year.
This is what summer and childhood are all about! Thank you Papa J for the wonderful memories created in your backyard this weekend!
We love you!!

Love it! Those smiles are priceless. Can you tell us your source for those cute pants?

Awww. what fun! Great pictures. I will have to let you know about the hats. My daughter is a hair stylist, and she always has the girls hair so cute. She was a bit concerned about them wearing a hat over their birthday "do" so I need to get the okay from her before I order the hats. But if not for them, I will be ordering one or some soon! I love them.

cute! We had a tire swing in our backyard when I was growing up. I would swing on that thing for hours every summer :)

Kris~ No prob. on the hats. I definitely understand about little girls and hair do's =)

Soooooooooooo wish we had a big 'ole tree in our yard to hang a swing on!!!
